Film review: Telstar

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

Telstar is co-written and directed by Nick Moran, who you may recall as the lead actor in Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels. It was supposed to make Moran a star, but didn't. Instead supporting player Vinnie Jones stole his thunder, and it was Jason Statham who went on to become a Hollywood action hero. This lends Telstar a certain piquancy when it touches on the capriciousness of talent-spotting. Rod Stewart auditioned unsuccessfully for Meek, as did Tom Jones and the Beatles, three times ("they're rubbish"). On the other hand, Meek lavished attention on novelties like Screaming Lord Sutch (an astutely cast Justin Hawkins, from the Darkness) and blew large amounts of cash trying to turn his big crush, a 19-year-old blond bacon slicer called Heinz Burt (JJ Feild), into a star.

Former DEEP PURPLE members Jon Lord and Glenn Hughes are among the musicians who performed at the ChildLine Rocks concert this past Monday (June 1) at the IndigO2 in London, England.

Francesco at Deep Purple Italia, who attended the show, tells BLABBERMOUTH.NET: "Jon Lord hit the stage first, performing a version of his 'Pictured Within' song with guest vocalist Steve Balsamo. He then played a version of PURPLE's 'Child In Time' with Balsamo singing and THUNDER playing. Glenn Hughes came on stage shortly after and played 'You Keep On Moving' (from the DEEP PURPLE 1976 album 'Come Taste The Band') with Jon Lord (and THUNDER). After this song, Lord left and Hughes performed another PURPLE classic ('Mistreated') and his solo hit 'Soul Mover'. The duo was back together on stage for the 'grand finale' a version of 'Smoke On The Water' played by all the bands and artists that attended the event."

Rocker JUSTIN HAWKINS' HOT LEG bandmates refuse to drink around the former THE DARKNESS frontman in a bid to aid his ongoing battle with booze.
The I Believe In A Thing Called Love hitmaker gave up drugs and alcohol at the end of his tenure with The Darkness after his substance abuse became a huge problem.
